The Oregon Applied Sustainability Experience (OASE) offers paid internships for its 10-week program this summer. Internships are open to juniors or seniors with advanced undergraduate or graduate-level training in business, economics, engineering, environmental science, green chemistry, physical science or sustainability science.
Projects address pollution prevention solutions for Portland-area businesses and pair students with an industry mentor to gain hands-on experience in project development and management.
What is Pollution Prevention? Pollution prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces, eliminates, or prevents pollution at its source, also known as “source reduction.” Implementing P2 best practices can improve efficiency, prevent wasted resources and save money.
Successful candidates received a $5000 stipend for a full-time, 10-week internship. Interns must be available to work onsite at the businesses on a daily basis. Housing costs are not provided, but limited funds may be available to support program-related expenses.
For full consideration, applications must be submitted by April 9. Application requirements and the available positions are listed on the Oregon Sea Grant website.
